OPTOCORE introduce unique Single- and Multi-Mode MADI transceiver

In a world first, Optocore has implemented a groundbreaking transceiver for its DD2FR-FX optical MADI device, which accepts both Multi-Mode and Single-Mode fiber signals. As a result of this unique feature, the transceivers can connect to both Single Mode and Multi-Mode third party MADI link partners with the same multi-mode 50µm / 62,5µm cable — at the same time representing a substantial cost-saving for customers.

OPTOCORE’S Limited Edition Offer on New- Generation Network Converters Optocore, pioneers in fibre-optic based audio and data network distribution, are stimulating sales of their new ‘R’ series converters with a special limited edition offer on transceivers for new customers.

The new series already offers increased featureset and efficiency, reduced carbon footprint and a substantial decrease in cost over the models they have replaced — but Optocore are sweetening the deal further for a limited period only by offering the superior 1Gbps SM Transceivers at the same price as the 1Gbps MM Transceivers.



Vast distribution over fibre to feed stadium ‘ring’ loudspeakers

When Capital Sound technical manager Ian Colville and Take That’s experienced system designer and audio crew chief Al Woods set about investigating a fibre system for use on the band’s current Progress Live 2011 tour, it was in view of the huge distances the signal would need to travel to the delay positions on the stadium roofs.

The idea of a ‘ring’ system (to avoid the sightline-obscuring use of delay masts), had been floated by production manager Chris Vaughan. “We wanted to use AES to transfer the data and audio but knew that copper would not carry it over the vast distances required,” acknowledged Woods. “After putting together the spreadsheets for cable runs it becameapparent we needed to pay attention to the method we used — with such runs up to 200 metres reliability became our main concern.”

In fact they dispensed with other options after carrying out ‘real world’ signal transport tests using AES over copper and RS485 — which revealed either signal degradation or the presence of hums and buzzes — while the analogue path would have exposed them to different local power sources. Thus Colville and Woods co-designed an Optocore solution — a platform already familiar to Al Woods.
